Green Rage live on the App Store!

image

Am working on a full review of this quirky and unique new platformer from Paralline just released called Green Rage. If you have experienced the platform genre in the past, and think you have seen it all, you haven't and will want to grab this one ($1.99)! You mostly scurry along through twisted and varied obstacles, jump and evade baddies, and shoot stuff! Have to warn that it's version 1.0, and I had some issues with my older devices. The dev is working on those, but if you have a newer iPhone/iPad device running iOS 5.0 or later, shouldn't be a problem. Get it at the link above for iPad or here for iPhone...



TryGuessThis for iPhone & iPod Touch

Try Guess This is a great app which takes the popular type of game where you have to guess what the other player's word is a big step forward.  In this game you get to pick a word, or choose a word that is suggested from the apps library of over 3000 words.  Once you've chosen your word you need to help the other player guess it by sending them an image.  You can find a picture in your mobile device or take a new picture to send to them to help them guess.



Toppin'Wiper App Review

image

In this fun game you hold the job of “Toppin' Wiper” at a donuts shop.  Your job, which may seem simple at first, is to keep the shop walls clean.  It becomes more difficult, however, when you find that any time people don't like the donuts they purchase they throw it at the wall of the shop!  This happens a surprising amount, so you'll have to clean fast in order to keep those walls clean!

image

Hello, Cappuccino is a restaurant management game where you are the manager of a new cafe and you have to grow your business so it becomes the most successful cafe in the world.  Restaurant management games are nothing new, especially when it comes to playing on mobile devices, but this one does an excellent job at taking the best aspects of all the other games and combining them into this fun app.



Review: The Last Driver by Chillingo

image

Okay, I told you my “series” on infinite runners wouldn’t be coming out 5 days in a row.  In fact, this is part two and I think I’ve published 2 or 3 other reviews in between.  At any rate, this time around I’m taking a look at The Last Driver from Chillingo.  Apparently you are the last driver in a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies, UFOs and dinosaurs.  Thankfully you have an upgradable vehicle that jumps and has weapons attached to it, so theoretically you’ll be okay.  In practice, though, that isn’t so much the case.  Still, it can be quite entertaining for those few moments you stay alive between menu screens.



Review: Gibbets 2 by HeroCraft

image

Back in the day HeroCraft was one of my favorite PocketPC / Palm game developers, so I’m happy to see that they are becoming active in the iOS market.  While they still haven’t ported one of my favorite games over to the platform yet they have definitely selected some interesting titles to release for the device, and Gibbets 2 is no exception.  This archery game has you freeing the poor sods that would otherwise be the victims of the hangman’s noose (yeah, apparently that same guy that likes to torture innocents because other people can’t guess words quickly enough).  You’ll have to skillfully wield a bow and arrow across more than fifty levels to help set the hanging men free.



Best iPhone Games | iPhone Life Magazine

When searching for the best iPhone games, you can get lost in companies propaganda.  Articles like Top Ten FavoriteiPhone Games, can help to alleviate the stress.  The following snippets from articles can help you to decide what kind of game is better suited for you.

"Stinger Games' newly launched Stinger FoosballLeague takes a game that's already a step removed from reality into a truly virtual environment - topping as one of the best iPhone games.  Foosball, of course, is the table version of football or soccer.  With Stinger Foosball League, the field that was crammed into a table in a pub is now in your iOS device.  The premise sounds okay, but the execution is way cooler than it sounds.  That's because Stinger Foosball League is actually, well, cooler than actual foosball.  First of all, the 3D graphics and game physics are right on, putting this game at the forefront of console-style graphics on iOS.  Second of all, the view when playing real life foosball is… usually not that awesome. I'm sure there are people with foosball tables that are tricked out, but for most of us, they're usually a dingy affair.  But Stinger Foosball League hasn't been sitting in your uncle's basement for the past forty years.  Kick-ass flying cameras show off how much action there really is in a game known for being low-tech. And just to make it even more trippy, the ball leaves behind a golden light tail, kind of a comet-effect."

"The Universe of SPIRIT FORCE was inspired from the Japanese Samurai-era.  Discover an epic story giving you a social experience where players fight with monsters and collect Spirit Cards in order to save the world.  It places a core emphasis on player vs. player combat.  The player begins his journey as a member of the SPIRIT FORCE.  Battle with other players or clear the mission to get great treasure and rare card. Use crafting skills with the collected treasures in order to summon new Spirits.  Players can team up with friends and cooperate each other to fight against boss, unlock new rewards and new stages.  The most immersive and massively multiplayer online card game ever!"

Both of the previous two articles are on specific games, but perhaps you want a more comprehensive look on several games... The Free iPhone Games To Kick Off Your Summer articleis what you are looking for.
